Newtyle Beat Water Gauge Today

Here's the gauge today showing a lovely falling spring water level. Ayrshire angler Stuart Lang had an amazing day today on the beat. After lunch he had a go with a 28 grm copper toby down at the Alders Pool & with his very first cast hooked and landed a lovely 14 pounder. At 5 pm he asked me if there was anything worth spinning on the right bank so I told him it could be worth a go down at the Steps Pool below the hut. He hooked and landed another 2 springers within a short space of time (16 & at least 20 lbs) and was broken by another big one too. I have photos of all Stuart's fish (all returned) which he kindly sent via text messages to my mobile but I'm struggling to get them off my phone onto my pc to post here. I'll have another go later. Exceptionally well done Stuart who promises me he will be back again having just experienced his most magical spring salmon fishing day ever on his very first visit to the Newtyle Beat.
